Waiting List

We are an inclusive childcare provider, and we are happy to welcome all children and their families to our provision.

Become a part of our Childcare Happy Days Family in 3 simple steps!

  1. Complete our waiting list form below.
  2. Book a visit! You will receive an email inviting you to visit our setting, meet our staff members and ask as many questions as they may have. We will offer you flexible dates and times for your visit. During your visit, the manager will discuss your requirements and our availability with you.
  3. Secure your child’s place! Once we confirm the availability, you must pay a two-week deposit fee if you wish to reserve a place for your child.

Alternatively, parents can remain on our waiting list. Parents will be contacted if a place that meets their requirements becomes available via email. If we do not hear back within seven days of the date of the email, we will assume that parents no longer wish to reserve a place at ‘’ Happy Days’ and their application will be withdrawn.

*Please note. We normally have available spaces in September each year as this is when our preschool children leave our setting and move to the reception year in school. In exceptional circumstances, we might have space available at another time of the year.

We take the following matters into account when prioritising and deciding on admissions:

  • Availability of places, taking into account the staff: child ratios, the age of the child and any registration requirements
  • Children who have siblings who are already with us
  • When the application is received (extra weight is given to those who have been on the waiting list the longest)
  • The setting’s ability to provide the facilities necessary for the welfare of the child, including appropriate staffing arrangements
  • A child requiring a full-time place may take priority over a child requiring a  part-time place and bookings for full sessions and all year-round childcare may take priority over part-time sessions and term-time only applications. This is dependent upon work commitments, occupancy and room availability
  • Any extenuating circumstances affecting the child’s welfare or the welfare of his/her family.

Any information given to us from parents will be used solely for the use of ‘’Happy Days’’ Childcare and will be treated in the strictest confidence and kept secure and safe on the premises. If for any reason we are obliged to provide information to an external source, you will be notified. It is the responsibility of the parent to inform ‘’Happy Days’’ if their details should change.
